Overview
Encounter incredible sea creatures on this full-day Oahu snorkel tour. Explore the coast by boat and then swim near spinner dolphins and green sea turtles. Leave the details to your first-aid certified crew and spend the day playing in the ocean on kayaks and seeing what lives below the surface. Enjoy lunch onboard and opt for professional photos of your adventure, if you want.
Highlights
  • Swim with dolphins, sea turtles, and more during an Oahu snorkel cruise
  • Have fun with snorkel gear, kayaks, and stand-up paddle boards
  • Enjoy hula entertainment and a complimentary turkey sandwich lunch
  • Hassle-free, round-trip transportation from Waikiki hotels
What to Expect
Choose your departure time and then start the day with a hotel pickup (from selected hotels only). Follow your guides to see the wild spinner dolphins native to the region. Swim alongside them and watch as they jump and spin in the air and then move to another location to see brightly colored tropical fish and Hawaiian green sea turtles. A professional photographer captures images of the day, which you can purchase for an additional fee. After playing with kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and the onboard 20-foot (6-meter) waterslide, dine on grilled cheeseburgers served on a purple taro bun (veggie option available). Finally, return to your departure point.
